Horse Trail

Another lovely day for the trails, we are heading up the zigzaging Watt Creek trail...

...steep in parts, but in excellent shape,
 this well groomed horse trail meanders
through the tree covered mountainside
in Cultus Lake Provincial park.

Nearing the crest of the first climb...

...we can enjoy the views of the Sword fern
which grows abundantly here as a ground cover.

Another View

Here is another viewpoint
on last Saturday's run...(see here) a wide view of the
verdant farmland in the valley below.

Views Well Earned

A beautiful day for a trail run up Vedder mountain...

...from the Cultus lake side...

... on to the beautiful views on the western side,
looking north towards the Fraser River
and Harrison Lake in the far distance...
...The moss covered rocks were beautiful,
and the sudden drop-off edge
to the valley floor rather dizzying,
but it was the highlight of our 4 hour trek...
